For the Philadelphia Eagles, the 2014 NFL Draft will serve as an opportunity to build off of last year's success. Philadelphia is a playoff team now, but could emerge as a title contender with the influx of more talent. See who the Eagles pick up in this final seven-round mock draft, which was conducted on First-pick.com's mock draft simulator.

Round 1, Pick No. 22: Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU

After parting ways with DeSean Jackson this offseason, the Eagles will likely consider snagging a receiver as early as Thursday night's first round. LSU's Odell Beckham Jr. is perhaps the best fit. There has been talk of the Eagles trading up for Beckham, so they likely wouldn't waste much time making him the pick if he's somehow still available after 21 selections, like the simulator projects in this instance.

Round 2, Pick No. 22: Dee Ford, DE, Auburn

Arguably the best-case scenario plays out for the Eagles with their second-round pick in this mock. Auburn's Dee Ford, who is regarded as one of the class' top edge rushers, could be in play for Philadelphia in the first round. Getting him in the second would be an absolute steal as the Eagles need to bolster their pass rush at some point. It's unlikely Ford lasts as long in the real draft as he did in this simulation, though.

Round 3, Pick No. 22: Keith McGill, CB, Utah

The Eagles ranked dead last in pass defense last season, so, in addition to upgrading their pass rush, they must seek a contributor or two in the secondary. Utah's Keith McGill has the size and arm length to smother receivers with air-tight coverage.

Round 4, Pick No. 22: Christian Jones, ILB, Florida State

Inside linebacker is a need for the Eagles entering the draft. Florida State's Christian Jones would be an ideal fit to fill it. Jones is athletic with superb coverage skills and would be a coup for Philadelphia on Day 3.

Round 5, Pick No. 22: Brock Vereen, SS, Minnesota

The Eagles have some capable options at safety already on the roster, but more depth is needed at the position. Minnesota's Brock Vereen has excellent range and can play either safety spot at the next level.

Round 7, Pick No. 22: De'Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon

Chip Kelly is reunited with one of his former Oregon players in this mock. De'Anthony Thomas' playmaking ability would be put to good use in Philadelphia's fast break offense.
